Cute kids on the Cayes in Belize

It turns out that it isn’t possible to spend every waking moment of every day underwater enjoying the marine life of Belize.  Sad, but true.  The good news is that there was enough to do on land that it made the time between dives pass pretty quickly.  We didn’t even have to bother with the inland jungle excursions and we still found ways to fill our time.  Much of that was spent wandering around through the streets of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye or around Caye Caulker, watching the locals go about their daily business.  You can learn a lot about a place by just watching folks doing their thing.

Whether it was headed to or from school or hanging out on the waterfront and performing some rather acrobatic leaps off the docks into the water, everyone seemed to be having a pretty good time.


I think that the most significant thing I learned about the Belizeans is that they have learned to relax and enjoy life, even while taking important things seriously.  Definitely a good balance to strike.
